Streaming via Desktop computer.
We started using our big screen (40" is big screen? lol) for a computer monitor about 2 years ago btw. Then we started using the Xfinity streaming to get what we pay for as the TV part of the Triple Play. The big screen is older and quirky when it came to switching between using it as a computer screen and watching TV so streaming was a good option.
Anyway, just recently streaming stopped working on the Opera browser so we downloaded Firefox and it worked just like Opera used to. We really liked Opera but the little tweaks they kept adding to the huge of pile of nonsense caused us to switch to Firefox. Opera seemed to be breaking things left and right.
So about 2 weeks or so ago, using the desktop and Firefox we routinely went to watch a channel. It started, hestitated, stopped, looked for the channel, came on for a second, then paused, then eventually we gave up. We checked back every day to no avail. It just does not work. We did stop the hardware acceleration in Firefox and that did not do a thing. Firefox was working fine with Xfinity streaming but now it is not. Did they go the way of Opera and
It's all fine and dandy but with the high cost we are paying, 220 bucks a month at present you would think the system would be a lot more reliable.
Any thoughts on the problem? Local issue? Won't be fixed? It's ALWAYS the customers equipment, never Comcasts equipment or system.
You just don't get something working fine then it goes belly up. lol
Oh and one more thing.
